Spring trip question.

When does the trail usually become snow free? I want to plan a trip down from Oregon to run the triai and would rather wait until after the snow is mostly gone.

Usually by June. Although I have ran it realitively snow free in April.
Obvious answer is watch the weather and pay attention to flow/snow pack sticky.

Thanks I keep my eye on the local weather and follow some locals on social media to see how the trail conditions are. Just trying to get a little more insight to get an idea of a good weekend to head down. I am thinking the first week of may.

If this winter keeps up that might be a little early. Don't forget about the creek flow.
What kinda rigs you guys running?

all depends on the weather during winter

2011 you would have seen 1800 cfs
2012-2016 you could have gone because of a 4 year drought

this year the drought looks to be over and snow levels "should" be good(bad for you) making for a wet/snowy trail in may-july

2011 there was snow in the north facing shade until august

We all have buggys with 40s or bigger. As long as the crossings are safe, wet trail and snow would not be the end of the world but Sounds like June would be a safer bet.
